Welcome to my Poverty+Social Work blog!
I’ve been tossing around the idea of starting a blog for a while now, and with some encouragement from those around me-here it is!
For those that know me (and those that don’t), issues families and individuals face while in poverty happens to be one of my hot topics. Living and working in Appalachia, West Virginia specifically, has opened my eyes to the every day struggles many face today. I’m hoping that by visiting my blog you will better understand how institutional policies, governmental rules, and social bias affect those most at risk.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned!
